Vadatech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete application-ready platforms, has announced new Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) carrier for a FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) per VITA-57. The design allows users to utilize the popular FMCs within the AMC format of the MicroTCA architecture.

Compliant to AMC.1, AMC.2, and AMC.4, the Vadatech AMC515 Carrier for FMC features a Virtex-7 chip in a 1925 package. Multiple AMC carriers can be used in a system holding different FMCs, providing a wealth of serial protocol options and performance features. The FPGA interfaces directly to Ports 4-11 and to the CLK signals and allows protocols such as PCIe, SRIO, XAUI, etc, to be programmed or re-configured. The on-board QorIQ PPC (Pin Peripheral Controller) runs at 1.0GHz with 2GB of DDR3 memory at 64-bit wide. This allows for large buffer sizes to be stored during processing and for queuing to the host.

The Vadatech AMC515 comes in the single width, mid height (4HP) or full height (6HP) size. It has an on-board jitter clock cleaner. The AMC carrier for FMC also has 8MB of boot Flash and up to 32GB of user Flash. Other features include a Serial over LAN with hardware RNG (Random Number Generator) for secure sessions and RoHS compliance.

Vadatech also provides AMC carriers in various configurations; Xilinx and Altera-based, in single width/half height, double width/full height, and double width/mid height. The company also offers AMCs, MicroTCA Carrier Hubs (MCH), J-Tag Switch Modules (JSM), Power Modules (PM), Storage, Software, Shelf management, commercial and rugged chassis-level platforms, and application-ready systems in the MicroTCA architecture.
